About Me

Well, hello.

I’m Isabella. Welcome to Bella’s Beauty Box, a tiny little beauty blog that is here to make you smile and fill you with happiness. I am here to listen to you.

More importantly, I am here (on this page) to tell you about myself.

Here’s 50 facts about me:

  1. I really like sports (baseball and basketball in particular), but I have practically no athletic ability at all.
  2. My favorite color is green.
  3. I could eat frozen yogurt and/or Chipotle for every meal and not get tired of it.
  4. My favorite quote is “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” (A quote from the coolest basketball coach ever: Jim Valvano).
  5. I live in the Midwest (which is both a blessing and a curse).
  6. I really really really hate cauliflower (the one time I had it was probably one of the worst food experience I have had so far).
  7. I have a bulldog that loves to sneeze on people.
  8. I don’t like to make my bed.
  9. I like to think that I know what I am doing all the time (when I really don’t).
  10. I am a big fan of eating and sleeping.
  11. I wish I could get paid to eat.
  12. My other favorite quote is “Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself” (a quote from my favorite English teacher).
  13. I am a really slow runner, but yet I still run.
  14. I wish I lived in a place where it was sunny and nice all the time (instead of rainy, cold, and miserable… #MidwestProbs).
  15. I have never tried sushi mainly because of the fact that raw fish seems disgusting.
  16. I have an obsession with Chipotle burrito bowls.
  17. I have been watching the Food Network for as long as I can remember (throwback to Ham on the Street and the 10 million shows barbecue related Bobby Flay has had).
  18. My favorite Disney Channel movies are either Eddie’s Million Dollar Cook Off (Bobby Flay had a cameo in that… I have liked Bobby Flay forever) or Smart House (quality movie).
  19. I have a tiny obsession with makeup.
  20. I could talk for hours and hours and hours.
  21. When there are no bananas in my house, you don’t want to be around me.
  22. If you have never had Portillo’s, then you need to sprint to your local airport, take a plane to Illinois, and eat at the nearest one immediately.

  31. I try to eat healthy as much as I can.
  32. The amount of lippies I have in my purse is insane (current tally= 6 lippies).
  33. I listen to an unreasonable amount of food podcasts.
  34. My personal favorite food podcast is either Food News or Spilled Milk (their mint chocolate podcast was amazing).
  35. I used to religiously watch Rocky 4 and Space Jam.

  42. I like to think that I know what I am doing when I go to the gym.
